When I first started this blog I thought I would have trouble coming up with projects. Turns out I have so many projects going at once I don’t even have time to blog! But I’m back and have got a great reveal for you today! For the background info on Grandma Frosty and the design plan for this project you can check out the nursery design post here. This was such a fun project and I loved being able to work with not only my mom but MY grandma, my cousin and her adorable baby! Here are the before-ish photos (they were shot at night so talk about super orange!)

My grandma from Oklahoma was in town so she helped us find a place for everything when the carpet was still in. It was seriously so fun doing a project with my mom and grandma. She had some great books to add to the collection – she even had one that her grandpa read to her! Ready for those after photos?
It turned out SO GOOD! I would like to commend my mom on sticking to her guns – and her beige walls. I’m the kinda gal to paint anything and everything a crisp fresh white (we even went and bought the paint!) but once we got the crib and some items in the room she wanted to leave the beige. I do have to say it looks great! Your probably wondering – but will babies and children love it? Well good thing we got our hands on the CUTEST nursery tester/model, Winnie Rae.
Winnie is 11 months old – prime age for nursery testing! She is totally on the move crawling all over, loves to get her hands on any book, animal toy, and/or real animal she can, LOVES puppies and unicorns, and of course her Great Auntie Frosty! When I asked her she was all “anything for G.A. Frost” (that’s how the kids talk these days) and checked her modeling schedule to see if she could fit me in. It was a close call between naps but she made it work great! Read more…
